* Because of their unique anatomy and depth, the extraction of some large molar and canine teeth usually involves additional costs and may need to be performed as a separate procedure. In addition, extraction of these teeth can pose special risks if the health of the jawbone is not evaluated first with dental x-rays. We may refer your pet to a veterinary dentistry specialist for these higher risk extractions.
* Surgical closure of the opening left by extraction of upper canine teeth is crucial in order to prevent a draining tract from the nasal cavity; these extractions usually require a gum flap at an additional charge.
* Extractions of most cat teeth require dental x-rays and are referred to a veterinary dentist specialist.
The cost for a dental cleaning (excluding extractions or teeth removal) is $100 for dogs less than 50 pounds and $150 for dogs 50 pounds or more, and the procedure usually takes 45-60 minutes. Pre-dental bloodwork and IV fluids, at a nominal additional cost, are recommended but not required unless your pet is 10 years of age or older. The cost of a dental cleaning includes: general anesthesia, pulse oximetry and respiratory monitoring, a warming table, ultrasonic cleaning, a full examination of all teeth, polishing, an antimicrobial enzyme rinse, a long acting antibiotic injection, and pain medicine (if needed). Post-dental antibiotics may be prescribed at an additional fee. The cost of extractions varies according to time, depth of roots, and need for sutures and/or surgical gum flaps.
